Breaking News LIVE, October 31, 2021: Hello and Welcome to ABP News LIVE Blog! Prime Minister Narendra Modi will leave for Glasgow from Rome today to attend COP26, the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Convention Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
He will also participate in the high-level segment of COP26 titled ‘World Leaders’ Summit’ from November 1 to 2.
The COP26 will take place from October 31 to November 12 at the Scottish city of Glasgow where the world leaders and negotiators will deliberate actions to reduce carbon emissions to restrict the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The Taliban called on the United States and other countries on Saturday to recognise their government in Afghanistan, saying that a failure to do so and the continued freezing of Afghan funds abroad would lead to problems not only for the country but for the world.
No country has formally recognised the Taliban government since the insurgents took over the country in August, while billions of dollars in Afghan assets and funds abroad have also been frozen, even as the country faces severe economic and humanitarian crises.
“Our message to America is, if unrecognition continues, Afghan problems continue, it is the problem of the region and could turn into a problem for the world,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told journalists at a news conference on Saturday.
He said the reason the Taliban and the United States went to war last time was also that the two did not have formal diplomatic ties.
